I have bought a Ubisoft game on Steam, and bought its season pass product key on a retail website, which happens to be for UPlay.

It seems that I have wasted my money. That, I accept. Now, I want to buy the base game for UPlay as well because it is cheaper to buy DLC on Steam.

My question is, if I try to activate a product on UPlay, which I already own in Steam, will it say you already own the product or will it allow me to activate the base game and play the bought DLCs?

As Steam and UPlay are totally different platforms and do't share the same account, there is no way, that each platform could know about the games on the other one. Therefore my answer is, that you can activate the base game on both platforms.

Also if that wouldn't be possible, then the game should automatically be in your UPlay library if you activate it on Steam.

  • That's what confuses me too, every single UPlay games I've bought on Steam simply launches UPlay when I start them, essentially making me play them through UPlay anyway, Steam is not even required to play the game at this point, I don't see why activating the DLC on UPlay wouldn't work – CoqPwner Oct 19 '18 at 13:52
  • I'd assume that they need to start UPlay to check the license as well as access any online content. Steam is in these cases really only the seller – XtremeBaumer Oct 19 '18 at 14:09
  • The game is actually in my UPlay library. However, I cannot install the game using UPlay. It proceeds through Steam. – padawan Oct 19 '18 at 19:29
  • Have you already tried to activate the season pass on UPlay? Because right now it sounds like you should be able to since it is in your library – XtremeBaumer Oct 22 '18 at 6:07
